I got my self confused checking out the head of Tomcat the other day.
As near as I can figure, if I want Tomcat 3.x I really seem to want
the tomcat_32 branches of tomcat and servletapi.

Am I close to right?

What is the branching strategy for tomcat and related projects as work 
on tomcat 4.0, Servlet 2.3, etc ramps up?

Does it make sense to publish the branch tag names on the "how to get
this from cvs" page?
